Hobbies

I am very passionate about the study of Latin and the classical world and I enjoy finding new ways to make ancient topics accessible for students using the most up-to-date pedagogical techniques. I believe that every student can have fun and gain something from studying Latin! My former students will tell you that I am a positive and energetic teacher who cares deeply about helping students to succeed. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy acting and participating in community theatre. I'm also a big fan of reading and creative writing. I'm an aspiring polyglot and enjoy practicing French, Italian, German, and Japanese whenever I have the chance. While I mainly trained as a Latin teacher, I have extensive experience working in arts education (acting, improv, singing, public speaking). I also pride myself on my organization skills and have a strong understanding of what techniques might help a student improve their ability to succeed both inside and outside of the classroom. If you or your child are interested in working on these skills as well, please let me know!
